About: Ben Colbran moved from New Zealand to Papua New Guinea in the 1960s when the government encouraged foreign agriculturalists to cultivate the land throughout the highlands. He founded Baroida Estate and was one of the first farmers to grow coffee in the valleys of the Kianantu District. Today, Ben's son, Nicol, manages the estate. Baroida gets its name from the spirit, believed by the locals, to live in a large rock that sits in one of the main rivers. The rock is famous for having never budged despite the severe floods that sometimes afflict the area. This lot was pulped and sundried on raised beds with the sticky mucilage still attached, creating a sweet and jammy coffee.
